All Star Fan Saved Before Falling 20 Feet

PHOENIX (AP) - A fan trying to catch a ball during Major League Baseball's Home Run Derby in Phoenix found himself dangling over a pool deck roughly 20 feet below. He was caught just in time by his brother and a friend.

Keith Carmickle, of Kingman, was trying to catch a home run hit by Prince Fielder in the second round of Monday night's derby when he stood on a metal table about 18 inches wide. He reached down to get the ball and tumbled over the rail, saved from a big fall when a friend grabbed his legs and his brother wrapped up his arms.

Carmickle was pulled back up to his seat after dangling over a deck area behind the pool in right field at Chase Field. A fan at a Texas Rangers game died last week while trying to catch a ball thrown into the stands.
